Nautical Connecticut Wedding

Something about nautical weddings always makes my heart beat a little bit faster. Newlyweds Shawn and Richard seem to feel the same way, because they adorned their big day with sea-inspired touches, from anchor invitations to rope centerpieces to one of the cutest escort card ideas we’ve ever seen, cards attached to compasses! Thanks to Christina Szczupak for sending this wedding our way.

From the bride, Shawn: Richard and I choose Woodway Beach Club as our venue because of the southern view of the Long Island Sound. We wanted a beachy wedding, but didn’t want to lose the New England feel or the tradition of a wedding in a Church. When Woodway agreed to set up bonfires along the beach, we knew it was the perfect place.

Throughout the entire planning process, we tried to incorporate casual nautical themes. We found a lot of our vendors on Etsy, who were able to incorporate our colors and nautical theme. My favorite part of the planning process was the moment we both (finally) agreed on a wedding band. Once we knew our guests would be dancing, the rest of the pieces just fell into place.
